Unhappy Cool..

Hi LARRY....
...Bet U wish U were still playing in it now....lol, must be worth a FORTUNE...funny how we catch certain things the second time around, still, that's life...
Are there any other makes out there, besides Airstream, or do they hold the market for trailers, I know there are a few R/V conversions out there, ( I saw a few in FLA: ), but only saw a couple of A/S's, one was at WDW, of all places....most likely be turned into a POP-CORN hut by now...( I hope NOT )...
Take care now...Chris.....

they call it the streak

there is one more brand of yesteryear stream line competitor.Silver streak although I've never came across a silver streak motor home.I also seen some nice Avion trailers .I think the old silver streak trailers have a club statious.But I don't know who was around first.

Spartan Trailers

Here are a couple more links. Spartan was originally an aircraft company, made trailers after WWII, now an aircraft training school. Very interesting history to read.

spartans

Pretty cool pics ,I've noticed that thare are 2 of these trailers in my neiborhood.one is polished up nice and the other is in need of restore. Looks like they are really roomy inside and they have some nice wood work also. J paul Getty (the richest man in the world) before guys like Bill gates came along!.I bet these trailers were a pretty penny even in there day.

California teardrop rally

This is a video of a program on PBS we watched last week. For someone interested in teardrops it's quite good. This link is to the place to buy a copy. Since I watched this I have spotted a teardrop in the RV storage area where we park our motorhome, I never noticed it before.

Re-Streaking....

Hi Guys...
Larry B, ...lol, do U actualy remember that SONG, ???,
can't quite recall who sung it, ( Chuck Berry ...???? )...
Whoever put the names to ALL these wondreful A/S's, I look at the pictures and think, yep !!! that name fits that unit, anyone kn who's JOB it was to get to name the NEW vans...I betcha that Guy NEVER worked on a monday, could be a little upsetting if one's had TOO many "BUDS ", the night b4...lol, instead of the BAMBI...one could end up with the BOGGY, simply because it is SMALL as a portable loo....
Don't get ME wrong here Guys, I aint picking...just adding a little Old English Humour !!!....
I am amazed to understand, that there are NOT so many CLASSIC A/S's on the roads of yous States, and they ARE quite rare, Where DID they all go to ???...Not turned into BURGER-VANS, or pop-corn tubs....
Keep up the GOOD work Guys, and THANK'S
B-Good now...Chris.....

Wink Don't LOOK !!!

HI Larry...
Larry...SORRY I'm LOL here...I kinda get a mental picture of ETHAL...and SHE aint looking at his FACE...so I don't think she will reconise him...unless they both share the same nudist beach....lmao...!!!
......Talking of ETHAL, not quite A/S, but CLASSIC just the same...I once bought a GREEN A35 austin VAN, for my pal & I to haul our DISCO stuff around in, and YES it IS true, the lady of the house was named ETHAL so our van '61 ish, was named for us...we had many years of enjoyment , both business and pleasure, but sadly it had seen many years of abuse, as a small holding workhorse...and the rear floor gave way to the tarmac, thus ending our radio careers...LOL....
Gee I sure kick myself for forgetting his name too..., promise you'll NOT tell a soul....I actualy LIKED that record, I found it very funny, and it came out when I was at my STUPID age...well my D/W says, MEN are little boys...in LONGER pants....BLESS HER...
Take care ALL...Chris.....
